I’ve seven fig trees; 5 Desert Kings
and 2 Brown Turkey
; they are definitely early this year. I’d estimate at least two weeks, perhaps 3 weeks. It’s easy to gage this as I begin giving them away at the school district I work for …and have only a few Brown Turkey’s left …and lots of expectant staff!
Though I’ve a number of other varieties of fruit, this is definitely the earliest my figs have ripened in the last ..20 years. In fact, though ‘up in the hills,’ I may for the first time get a ‘second crop’ – come on Indian Summer
